Hello everyone. Today’s photo assignment was “Landmark”. I considered a few ideas, but Flirtation Point is perhaps the major landmark here. In fact, you’ll find the rock formation on old postcards from the very beginning of photography.
I decided to give you two views. I drove around town capturing it from about ten different vantage points. It’s a very cold day, and it will probably snow tonight, so we are lucky to have this image of the fading fall colors blanketing the town.
For the first view, it’s looking at the backside, if you’re speaking relative to the town. The three crosses on the top were put there by the Wray Ministerial Alliance some years ago. The smaller monument is a Masonic marker.
The second image will show you the view once you go on top of Flirtation Point. The city looks so great laid out before your eyes. I’ll tell you… it was cold standing up there today! I hope the photo conveys that feeling.
Enjoy the view, and have a creative day!
One thought on “Flirtation Point”
Thanks Brian for a view remembered. Living out-of-state now, I always make a point of driving up to the Point, up and down main street a few times and of course past my childhood farm when I return home. The best shot I ever got of the Crosses is to proceed just a tad further down on the road you are showing. Stop in the curve (but listen for cars so you don’t get run over LOL) and look up. There is a small window of seeing them against the sky with rock formations surrounding them. Thanks again. Yes, it looks cold on the day of your picture.
